1) NH CITIZENS WANT GREATER PROTECTION
Granite State citizens have no equal standing against harmful corporate activities & “personhood” that consistently appeal to state preemption to remove any recourse the people of NH have to protect their communities from becoming sacrifice zones to profit marketed as a “greater good.”
CACR19 empowers people in their communities to protect community interests over profit.
2) COMMUNITY RIGHTS-BASED PROTECTION
CACR19 addresses this inequality by seeking to recognize, secure, & protect the individual & political right & authority of people in NH municipalities to enact local rights-based laws that prohibit corporate activites violating their rights to the health, safety, & welfare of their human communities & the air, water, & soil on which they depend.
CACR19 recognizes local authority to protect health, safety, & welfare as a matter of right.
3) EXPANDING, NOT LIMITING RIGHTS
CACR19’s language ensures local rights-based laws could not weaken real persons’ existing rights—including 2nd Amendment rights—under state & federal constitution & law, but could be used only to expand rights. 2008 & 2010 U.S. Supreme Court precedents declared 2ndAmendment rights are individual constitutional rights & consequently protected by CACR19’s language.
CACR19 recognizes authority to protect & expand individual rights.
4) AMENDMENT VS. LAW
Rights are not gifted by but recognized & enumerated within constitutions, so CACR19 is not a proposed law but a proposed constitutional amendment seeking to enumerate the right of local community self-government within NH’s Constitution the same way freed slaves' equal rights were recognized within the U.S. Constitution.
CACR19 recognizes limited local control at the municipal level.
